prior reviews have already mentioned it is in the Palmeraie area of Marrakech away from the center. If you are looking for a secluded location away from the hustle this maybe it. It is very popular with the local elite. Close to the golf courses.
Building and grounds:
the hotel consists of a large mansion with some rooms and many outer buildings with more rooms across the pool. The gardens and the pool are beautiful. The main mansion is exquisite with large airy sunny sitting areas. Would be ideal to use with a large family or with a large group of friends as there are only 23 rooms/suites in the entire place.
The furniture is really old and dirty stained. In areas the wood is peeling away. The carpets are aged and fraying. Bed mattress simply a hard board not a comfortable bed. Climate control was ok I had to use the air conditioners in the month of May. Tried to sleep with balcony doors open but the noise was too much. There is a disco attached to the outer building and the noise will keep you awake.
There is free hassle free wifi. However the signal is good in the main mansion but in the outside rooms it is not there. Wifi barely worked in the balcony but not inside the bedroom.
Service: One bottle of water given on check in and never replaced. The housekeeping were adequate.
Breakfast has no menu. You have to ask what is available beyond the basic egg and breads. The serve the breakfast in the main pool area, or in your room just call the kitchen.
There is a very modern looking bar / restaurant in the outer building but didn't use it.
There is a small gym with good aerobic equipment. But there are no towels or water available there.
This is an excellent location for big groups weddings events. Corporate meetings.
A little effort will make it into a real luxury property : improve wifi
Upgrade the decrepit furniture
Breakfast buffet in the main building so that miles of empty space can be used. Improve the food choices for breakfast. It is 100% bread based so if someone can't take bread there is not much choice.
Provide an attendant on hand at each building to get ice and other errands. It was a task trying to find someone.
It is hot very hot and ac is not adequate. Please add ceiling fans for this climate. It will also add to the ambience.
